Re: WiFi Drivers

Nope - nothing changed. It's fine though that it doesn't work. The computer is plugged in directly so i really don't need it to function. I'm just enjoying trying to get everything working on my system. With the new Wine out, and new patches for old games, i have all my 20 year old disk video games ...

Re: not any of the proton support games runs

Double check the settings in Steam. You have to opt in to Proton Beta Program, and then after it updates with a restart, you have to check the box Run Windows games in Linux. And then i believe you have to restart it again.

Re: Steam and CSGO doubts

I've been running CSGO under Proton because i have Windows games installed in Steam as well. CSGO will show up both in Proton version of Steam and Linux version of Steam and you can run CSGO either way.

Re: Stutter when moving mouse ingame

I had the same problem with the original Max Payne installed from CD under the latest version of Wine. I have a Logitech gaming mouse but Logitech doesn't have Linux drivers which are apparently kept in the mouse now and not on OS itself. I used a Windows computer to update the drivers in the mouse ...

Re: ISO verification not working

You Guy's ever think about doing a Youtube channel ? Other people are making money showing Linux distros (and your stuff), you would make some money for Mint as well, and boost your donations.

Re: ISO verification not working

Well, I'm trying to donate, but i don't have a PayPal, I only have a credit card. It shows credit cards but i can't click on them to donate.

Edit: I'm giving away my age. I figured out the PayPal thing. I always wondered why i couldn't find those cards in the stores.

Re: ISO verification not working

Yeah, I'm not very good at Linux even though I've had your Distro's since Linux Mint 18 came out. I'm doing something wrong because i know I've verified them in the past. You guys have the best distro's out there. I've tried all kinds and always end up coming back to Mint. I just bought a HP Slim (t...

ISO verification not working

I haven't downloaded a new version of Linux Mint for a while but I decided to try Linux Mint 19 "xfce". I'm unable to verify the Image. I've never been able to verify your image's with your directions. I've always had to look up how verify Linux Mint from other peoples directions but can't find them...

Re: List of support TV tuner card on Linux mint and How to

You may want to put this reply in a permanent place in case someone else has the same problem - it took me a year to figure this out. I had problems with Mint 19 displaying properly on my TV's - didn't matter which TV (New or Old) - then later Mint 18 would not display properly either. Windows 10 wo...

Re: [SOLVED] Kernel 4.15.0.47.49

I just installed this kernel and WOW ! My computer is wicked fast now ! I have 19 Mate with Cinnamon stacked on top of it. It's even fast with Cinnamon, which used to be a little slow. I can bring up applications now before I let up my clicker finger on the mouse - multiple instant apps. :)

Re: Boot error messages

Thanks. It may have been that i put boot loader in the wrong place as well - not sure why they give you a choice tho. I read that you are suppose to check in the BIOS to see where (the BIOS) wants you to load it. I looked all through the BIOS but couldn't find where my computer wanted them. I went b...

Re: mixed screen configuration when moving 2nd screen

I had the same problem going from 18 to 19. Try 18. Your problem may be "the new and improved" auto adjust the screen resolution. I tried a bunch of different distro's and they all had display problems.
